|-i||Initiation flag. If the -i flag is not used, all the tunnels in the tunnel database (or those listed with the -t flag) will be activated. If the -i flag is used, only the tunnels whose tunnel definitions in the tunnel database with the status of "active" will be activated.|
|-l||If the -l flag is specified, manual tunnels will be activated.|
|-t||If the -t flag is specified, only the tunnel(s) that follows this flag will be activated. If the -t flag is not used, all tunnel(s) currently defined in the tunnel database will be activated. The tid_list can be a single tunnel ID or a sequence of tunnel IDs separated by "," or "-" (1, 3, 5-7).|
|-v||The IP version of the tunnels to be activated. The value of 4 specifies IP version 4 tunnels. The value of 6 specifies IP version 6 tunnels. If the -v flag is not used, all tunnels for IP version 4 and IP version 6 will be activated.|
